An Introduction to Air Quality and Auxiliary Equipment for Boiler Plants

COURSE NO: M04-039
An Introduction to Air Quality and Auxiliary Equipment for Boiler Plants
Course Highlights

This online engineering PDH course provides an introduction to the design and operation of air quality control and monitoring equipment for fuel fired plants such as steam boiler plants. It discusses chemical, cooling and sump pumps, nitrogen and carbon dioxide systems, ash handling, boiler feed and condensate pumps, and air quality control and monitoring systems.


Carbon Monoxide, lead, nitrogen oxides, ozone, particulate matter, and sulfur, are now cited as the most insidious of pollutants generated by industrial or power plants with fuel fired boilers and other equipment. They are proven to contribute to respiratory illnesses in humans, damage to the environment and buildings and, ultimately, lead to higher costs for health care and environmental cleanup.


This 4 PDH online course is intended for mechanical, civil and environmental engineers and other design and construction professionals seeking an introduction to power plant air quality and auxiliary equipment.
